The Company

With Prolific, we're changing how research on the internet is done. Katia and Phelim started by building a marketplace that connects researchers (from both Academia and industry) with instant, high quality, global research participants. Now, as a growing team of 17, the bigger vision is to build the most powerful and trusted platform for behavioral research.

We've recently been part of Y Combinator's Summer 2019 batch and have decided to grow and scale the company from London, UK.

The Role

As part of our Growth Team and working closely with Leadership you will work towards these key goals:

  • Communicate about Prolific, it's mission, products and services to the academic community.
  • Deeply understand the concerns, needs and developing trends of the academic community.
  • Plan and experiment with new growth, marketing and sales channels to help hit targets.

This will likely involve some or all of the following:

  • Managing Prolific's conference and public communication strategy.
  • Acting as the main public spokesperson for Prolific in the academic community.
  • Help develop Prolific's public brand.
  • Help define growth KPIs and targets for acquiring, converting and retaining new researchers.
  • Study company products and translate technical details into benefits for the user by crafting compelling messages across marketing channels (landing pages, social media, SEO, blog) and creatively developing promotional materials and website content.
  • Implement marketing initiatives, and test/adjust these as needed in response to collected data and other feedback.
  • Disseminate the key information to the whole Prolific team in written reports and summaries, highlighting the key insights you’ve gained, which are easily interpretable and actionable.
